Life after separation—putting the pieces back together

The breakdown of a family can be a very traumatic time for everyone involved. Help is available to guide you through the legal process to ensure the arrangements you make for your family are fair and in your children's best interests.

This presentation explores your options and the services available as you face this difficult time. It offers information about the options available to you depending on your circumstances and, by dropping in on two families, will help you get a clearer idea of how the system works in ‘real life’ scenarios.

The presentation has been divided into chapters so you can choose the area you want information about, or watch them all in order, to get a clear idea of the whole process and all the options.
